Canterbury College is committed to strong Christian values, the pursuit of intellectual endeavour, the development of creative ideas and the acceptance of differences and diversity.
We are dedicated to developing confident young people with high self-esteem and self-discipline who will become active, contributing members of our community.
The seamless Pre-prep to Year 12 co-educational programme offers a rich curriculum, with opportunities for all students to pursue their dreams through flexible pathways to university, further education, a trade or employment.
Clontarf Aboriginal College, in the Edmund Rice tradition, is one of four ‘CARE’ (Curriculum and Re-Engagement in Education) schools in the Catholic system in WA.
The College offers a range of educational programs providing varied learning opportunities for students from Year 7 to Year 12. We have a proud tradition of cultural, spiritual, academic, and sporting excellence.
The pastoral care at the College enables a safe and caring environment where students can confidently grow to achieve their full potential. We believe in our motto ‘Learning for Life’ as we aim to foster in the students the desire to make a difference in our world
The College is co-educational and currently has places for approximately 180 students from years 7 to 12. Over 100 of these students are Boarders.
Our demographic makeup is varied, consisting of Aboriginal students from across the state from many communities, including those that are remote. We have an increased number of metropolitan students.
Catering for diversity is a priority at the College. A variety of opportunities are experienced by the students, not just through the classroom program, but through the Football and Girls Academies also.
The College is well resourced and has a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy, as well as English and Mathematics.
A Tertiary Entrance Class is available for those students requiring a pathway of further study.
Our Trade Training Centre has enabled the College to deliver Certificates in Trades as well as Vocational Education Training.
To enable students to become independent we offer the ‘Keys for Life’ program. Every student has the opportunity to gain their drivers licence. We employ the Driving Instructors and we have the cars on site. Trained staff members deliver the program.
Students who elect to do Outdoor Education can also obtain their Skippers ticket, Bronze Medallion and Senior First Aid Certificate.
